by Drew Malihan

KUALA LUMPUR -- Sunsparks extend their stay at the Axiata Arena in Malaysia as they beat Vietnamese team VEC Fantasy Main, 2-0 at the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang World Championship (M1) 2019 on Friday, November 15.

The Filipinos make quick work of the Vietnamese delegation on Game one of the best-of-three matchup in the lower bracket.

Jaypee led Sunsparks to a 9-1 mauling of VFM, with his Granger dealing four kills with four assists while VFM only scored a kill on Renzio's Terizla.

The Vietnamese drafted better in Game 2, having a triad of Esmeralda, Lolita, and Helcurt, but the Filipinos unleashed better gameplay.

A clutch play by Sunsparks led by Kielvj's Chang'e dictated the terms for the final moment of the game, stealing the lord and killing Lucky's Akai in the process.

Sunsparks needed only a minute to push through the middle inhibitor turret, prompting VFM to defend but to no avail.

The Filipinos set a lower bracket match against Burmese Ghouls of Myanmar tomorrow, November 16, for a spot at the M1 2019 Finals.
